    Gotta be honest here. I don't like it. It's a riff fest for sure, but doesnt feel cohesive and the songwriting is pretty average. Felt Volumes latest offering was a far better example of younger djent influenced metalcore.

    Wow I'm surprised by these comments. I thought the production was awful. And that guitar tone, not good. I expected more outta this, but its still got a bunch of cool riffs n has been gettin a lot of playtime for me. The corny clean singing has got to go, it simply does not fit with the rest of the music whatsoever.

    I wasn't bashing these guys, by the way. This album has been on repeat for the last two days straight. I love every bit of it. Even the clean vocals. Everyone has their own taste and style, and I think they've found theirs. It was a bit non-directional at points, but I can see them certainly maturing as they continue to write. And to go further into the clean singing, I fucking love the last track, "/". It's very emotional and shows the soft side of the band...but then it goes into a super heavy chugging section that ends the album with a bang. I give it an 8.5/10.

    Dude, YES. My exact thoughts. A real grower of an album. Can't wait to see them with BOO.

    I'm really not getting the Attila vibe, honestly. And that's a good thing, because I fucking hate that band. :lol: To each his own, though. ;)

    I agree with most of this. As for the clean singing, I don't like it. But i never liked pop punk or anything so that thing is just not for me in any way. however, the last track (and to a lesser degree, INTENT) is where it actually works well. The vocals sound pretty good on /, and then the contrast of that super heavy ending is awesome. If they could find a way as they mature to seemlessly blend moments as soft as that with those super heavy moments without sounding like they were kinda just thrown together, that'd be awesome. Itd also make it much easier to stomach those clean singing parts.

    Ditto on the riff fest, but it doesn't matter to me, even though it's not the most cohesive, it's definitely at the edge of what i will accept and won't accept. I love it in whole, and the clean singing makes me laugh, but just adds to the chaos.

    Clipping? I think I can hear it on my laptop, but not in the car.

    The album is just brutal :shred:

    Structures was my favorite band. I didn't realize they turned into half pop punk. Not really impressed so far. I'll have to give it a few more listens.

    The pop-punk stuff is cool. I like it. It's a nice little change-up from the constant riff madness.
    This album is absolutely fucking killer.

    I completely love the album. I can't believe so many people hate it :lol:

    It is exactly what I was expecting.

    At first I thought my speakers were broken. Turns out it's the production.

    The songwriting has some interesting moments, but many bands nowadays do. I didn't really found anything too exciting about this album.

    I disagree about this sounding like Atilla trying to cover Emmure. It sounds like Emmure trying to cover Danza.
